Piaac.net, the Nordic-Baltic PIAAC website, is being launched on December 10 2021. Researchers, education experts and policymakers can use Piaac.net for finding information about conferences, organised by the Nordic-Baltic PIAAC network, and Nordic-Baltic reports with results from PIAAC. The network will also create articles and video tutorials about access to and use of PIAAC data.
Specific results related to the Nordic-Baltic region
Piaac.net aims at gathering specific results and publications from the PIAAC survey related to the Nordic-Baltic region. The Nordic-Baltic PIAAC network and the Nordic Network of Adult Learning are hosting the new website, which aims at making PIAAC results more accessible and informing researchers about the possibilities of using the data from the survey separately or combined with register data.
For Hanne Størset, Senior Adviser at the Norwegian Directorate for Higher Education and Skills and a member of NVL's Basic Skills network, the PIAAC data is important for implementing skills policy strategies in the Nordic countries:
“In my opinion PIAAC, with the direct skills assessments and high-quality data, gives essential data. PIAAC data is central to an evidence-based policy to enhance knowledge and skills in the population, make lifelong learning accessible to all and ensure that the world of work has access to a competent workforce”, says Hanne Størset.
About the Nordic-Baltic PIAAC network
The objective of the network is to increase awareness of results from the PIAAC survey. It aims at promoting efficiency of the labour market and educational policies in the Nordic and Baltic countries by providing analyses based on the PIAAC data. The Nordic-Baltic PIAAC network is financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers and consists of Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Estonia and Latvia.
About the PIAAC survey
PIAAC is a survey on adult skills that provides insights into the key skills required by adults considering labour demands of technology skills as well as cognitive and interpersonal skills. The survey measures adults’ proficiency in key information-processing skills - literacy, numeracy and problem solving - and gathers information and data on how adults use their skills at home, at work and in the community.
